It's a big week in Hollywood, so we're checking in with US Weekly correspondent Christina Garibaldi for the latest celebrity headlines.


The Latest on Bennifer

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck shocked many when they were first seen together for the first time since their very public relationship and split. Now that the two A-listers are back and better than ever, it's no surprise that the two could have long terms plans for their love. With the territory of marriage comes many things, including financial decisions.

When we spoke to Garibaldi about the hot couple, she tells us that a prerup will be arranged if/when the two get married. According to a source close to the two, "it's a no brainer that she (Lopez) wants to protect her finances and investments."

​The source goes on to say that Lopez is worth more more than Affleck, but there's minimal to no doubt that the stars will be engaged "in the near future."

Netflix

Get ready Netflix fans! The platform just announced that two of its biggest stars are joining together for their newest movie.

Netflix revealed to TODAY that their latest film project is bringing Joey King, from The Kissing Booth, and Chase Stokes, from Outerbanks, together to play the two lead roles.

The new movie is an adaptation based off of the hit young adult sci-fi series Uglies by Scott Westerfield. Rumors about a film adaptation for the series have been circulating since the first novel's release, so Netflix's announcement comes as quite the pleasant surprise for fans.

Netflix had already teased that King was joining the cast for Uglies, however Stokes' involvement in the production was completely unknown until Tuesday. Along with announcing Stokes as the latest addition to the cast, Brianne Tju, from MTV's Scream, and Keith Powers, from the Freeform drama Famous in Love, will also be joining.

Uglies takes place in a dystopian society where beauty standards are taken to whole new extremes. Instead of getting your driver's permit at 16, teenagers are instead forced to get a complete reconstructive surgery, making them absolutely flawless--but that seems to be the flaw.

King is set to play the main protagonist of the film, Tally Youngblood, who will do literally anything to avoid her surgery. The roles of Stokes, Tju, and Powers still have yet to be released.

Uglies will be directed by Joseph McGinty Nichol, also known as McG, and Krista Vernoff is heading the screenplay adaptation. King will be executive producing the film alongside Jamie King, John Fox, and Scott Westerfield himself.

A premiere date for Uglies has yet to be disclosed.
